Last Meeting
Colin Fenton - The Improvements in Cataract Surgery Over the Years
"The devil is in the detail", but so is the interest. Most of us know someone who has had to get their cataracts "done" but few of us had appreciated how much modern surgery has advanced.  Even fewer would have heard of Harold Wrigley and how he transformed the process of "doing".  Before modern surgery nothing could be done when a person developed cataracts.  As recently as 1950 cataract operations became possible but would still involve the patient (or victim) going to the hospital the day before surgery, fasting and then having a general anaesthetic the operation, and spending seven days lying on their back, blindfold and waiting a further three months before having appropriate glasses prescribed.
